I have to remind myself to be tougher now as I feel something bad will happen soon so i am to step it up courageously

There are things I need NEED need to do. I feel too afraid too tired too sad too anxious... today. But I plan on being too energetic, too motivated, too calm too happy... tomorrow... God please guide and gaurd us with angels Amen.

I get pretty stressed out when I have things to do. They go round my head and I start to feel pressured, so I write task lists. I do what I can and then tick of each one - or only one! I feel a sense of relief and achievement - and, the pressure drops. Doesn't matter if I don't manage to do all. I just take them as they come. Best of luck with yours!

Thats a beautiful photo x

Try to think of only one thing to do and forget about the rest until you’re done with that one thing xx don’t think too much about lots of things that are needed to be done. This will overwhelm you and feed your anxiety ☹️ I do that a lot too and my husband taught me to write one task and magnet it on the fridge .. completely clear my mind from everything else and focus on accomplishing just the one x hope that helps x

That’s so helpful. I hope I can do that. Clearing my mind is tricky right now.

I understand 😔 such a hard thing to do isn’t it x okay maybe just shift your focus on that one task then x hope it helps x basically take one task at a time x

Well in the winter I’m advised by my consultant to try to avoid going out too much around people due to all the bugs and germs I can catch out there (he likes me to avoid the hospital ward in winter months for the same reasons) so I’ve been at home doing my new hobby inspired by some of you guys on here who like to paint!!! I’ve got myself paint by numbers kit for adults and I get completely lost in it for hours 😢 IV NEVER FOUND ANYTHING THAT CAN SHUT MY BRAIN OFF LIKE IT BEFORE! makes me so happy and I’m so thankful to you guys for that x it’s why I haven’t been on much xx 😘 what about you x

I’m so happy for you and your painting you’ve found to be such a blessing!!!!!!! Beautiful. I hope you will share some pics of your work. Today I need to do some laundry almost everything according to me needs cleaning but I am doing so horribly with my mind and emotions that I may take an easy day and not do very much. The anxiety makes me so tired. I am so tired of having bad days. I feel like I can’t even be positive right now. Trying to make it through the day in small steps.

I will definitely share once I am done x

I love having a good ‘me day’ where I do nothing but watch television lol. I hope it helps you to rest and helps you rest your mind too as you deserve it !

Yes I agree anxiety is very physically draining x

Remember a few weeks ago your spirits were higher and you felt happier ? that feeling will come back again so hold on to that hope

x The lows aren’t forever as time heals all 💕

That's so great to hear!! I'm really happy for you. Everyday is a new day :) and it's so important to listen to your body! Rest means rest!

I'm doing well :) my parents are in town so I have been extra busy with them, but I do enjoy having them around. I must remember to save some time in my day for myself though!

Yes have fun with your parents but recharge yourself, maybe going out into nature. I haven’t visited the woods in a while but it’s calling. Hope you have a great day!
